Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 19-25, 2013

Leo (July 23-August 22): You don’t give out trust easily, so it may come as a shock when you realize how fast a certain someone can knock down the walls around you. While it may take a minute to fall into this comfort of knowing someone does have your back, it won’t be a choice you regret no matter where it goes. Whatever is going to go down this week could truly be life altering.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): You have nothing to lose by saying how you feel and getting your points across. While you’d like your relations to progress more naturally, this isn’t the time for that. So, muster up some courage and start working for what you want using your words. Otherwise, sitting on the sidelines will only give you a view of someone else going after what you want.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Your paranoia about the future can get scary at times, but remember, nothing is set in stone and the more expansive and positive you make your options, the better your odds for a pleasant outcome. After all, white-knuckling security now isn’t going to get you anywhere. So, create some waves. Life can easily work out by just choosing for it to.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): You’ll be way more critical about the people around you and that could be a good thing. As it goes, you might find yourself in a social rut, which will limit your love life. Not that you have to give up your scene, but changing it up could reignite your interest to want to care again.  If you go half way, Cupid will work with you.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Much can get lost in translation now; so don’t be too fast to judge what comes out of your honey’s mouth. Yes, there are going to be differing opinions, but there won’t be a reason to go crazy. Seems there are many ways you can share time with one another and not always have to see eye-to-eye, and this week you’ll learn how — or at least attempt to.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Sometimes you have to get uncomfortable before you can find your groove, and that will certainly be the case this week. So, don’t get impatient if emotions start to get out of whack. Yes, the perspective on your relationship could shift suddenly, requiring a more expansive way of dealing. If this means prying your heart open a bit more, don’t resist the power, as we all have to be pillow biters sometime.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): A major turning point is going to happen in your love life, which can have you seeing yourself in a new light. Chances are your ballsiness will be going up a notch and could bring a shock to your system. Thankfully, fate will be on your side and wherever you stake your claim; the payback will be better than you hoped for. Yes, consider this a karmic bonus of using your voice.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Trying to control love now will be impossible. The cards just aren’t stacked in your favor. Be patient though, as this is all part of the game and the more class and calm you can play it with, the more points you will score. As you’ll see, if you really are on the same page with that other, you really can just chill in the passenger seat from time-to-time.

Aries (March 21-April 19): This week will have you arriving at a standstill when it comes to passion and excitement. Yes, this is when you will start to see your baby in a friendlier way and begin to explore the companionship side of your relationship more, as it can’t be all about screwing and passing out all the time. And sometimes that’s the best part. So, be open to whatever you feel now.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Home is your peace of mind and if anyone dares mess with it, there is a price to pay. However, this week, the changes that go down may be the more unusual kind and can turn your head and heart into a massive ball of confusion. The good news is that this scenario will awaken something in you and you’ll find that even the most rock solid plans can change.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Who cares what the future is going to hold? All you will know is that you’re feeling the love now and to even distract yourself from it, for even a second, would pain you to try to comprehend. Even if you try to intervene, don’t let it rattle you. Yes, if time were gold, this week would be an amount worthy of giving to a dead Pharaoh.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Nothing is forever and all you can do is try. If you find yourself curious about someone, realize you don’t have to make any major decisions now. In fact, this is your time to just shoot the shit and see where it goes. The less you have to think, the better off you will be. After all, expecting surprises kills 95.99 percent of the fun of getting one.
